On the German Federal Railroad, the "Bugelfalten" or "Pants Crease" class 110 electric locomotives embodied the dawn of a modern "streamlined" era. Their streamlined body suggested modern locomotives pulling modern express trains. Starting in 1963, all 221 express train units of the class E 10.3 were equipped with these streamlined bodies with the characteristic "Bugelfalte" or "Pants Crease" on the ends. The initial Steel Blue long distance train paint scheme gave way to a new paint scheme in Cobalt Blue on part of the locomotives after major servicing and repairs. This did not detract from their extremely elegant appearance.
